The do-it-yourself home mechanics of South Maui can now take their used motor oil to the Kihei NAPA - United Auto Parts location during regular business hours.
The state Department of Health estimates that approximately 1.08 million gallons of used motor oil are produced annually by DIY home mechanics.
Community Work Day Program, now doing business as Malama Maui Nui, recently took over the Used Motor Oil Recovery Program, which began on Maui in 1991, to help facilitate the collection and recycling of this oil.
This free service is available to home mechanics only--no commercially generated used motor oil will be accepted.
NAPA - United Auto Parts, located at 185 Haleku'ai Street, is open Monday through Saturday from 8 a.m. to 5:30 p.m.
Malama Maui Nui encourages all residents of South Maui to participate in the Used Motor Oil Recovery Program.
